Item Description: The Century Co. / E. P. Dutton & Co. 1897 and 1922, New York, 1897. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good+. Two volumes sold together, wonderful association copies for 19th century New York theater. AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF JOSEPH JEFFERSON, published by Century in 1897; full calf; 4to; rebacked, with original gilt-lettered backstrip. Inscribed by Jefferson to Otis Skinner, and with the bookplate of Cornelia Otis Skinner on front paste-down. A bit scuffed along the edges; prelims and terminals lightly dust-soiled; VG+, an excellent copy. MY YEARS ON THE STAGE, published by Dutton in 1922; half gilt-ruled red morroco and marbled paper, gilt-stamped lettering on spine, original gilt-lettered cloth backstrip bound in at rear; 4to; enriched with the addition of plates, invitations, Autograph Letters Signed, a telegram, and more. Inscribed by Drew to Otis Skinner, and with Otis Skinner's bookplate on front paste-down. Scuffed along joints; chip at head of spine; crack in gutter after half-title-p., though binding is otherwise nice and tight. Both volumes warmly inscribed by the stars of New York theater to fellow actor and friend Otis Skinner. Skinner was associated with Jefferson's troupe from 1895, where he perfected his famous Shakespearean roles as well as his signature role as Hajj the beggar in the Broadway's Kismet which he performed for over 20 years and starred in its 1920 and 1930 film versions. This volume, Skinner's own enriched copy of the work of his close friend, actor and stage manager, Drew, includes a Western Union Telegram by Drew to Skinner, thanking him for his kind review of this book, Chicago, 7 November 1922. Among 4 Autograph Letters Signed by Drew is an amusing one to Otis's wife Maud Skinner, thanking her for a letter and mentioning Otis: ". . . thank him for me and say, à propos of the `dead hand of Ethelberta' of happy memory, that after being in the sea for 15 minutes - even on the hottest day - all circulation stops in my fingers & they become waxen - so that I am known as `Francis Frozen-fin, the gelid wonder.'" 4 pages, folded 8vo, inlaid to size. On Kyalami, East Hampton stationery 9 August, 1923, and a few others to Otis in the 1920s mentioning various productions they were involved with. Also included are caricatures of John Drew, the commemorative dinner program celebrating Drew's 50th year on the stage, photographic plates from productions, and the memorial service program and letters to Skinner concerning Drew's death. The service took place on November 13, 1927 at The Church of the Transfiguration, known as "the actor's church" on 29th Street in New York City. A touching memorial compiled by Skinner, celebrating his friend and the golden age of American Stage Acting. Bookseller Inventory # JC4958

Item Description: Doubleday Doran, Garden City, 1933. Hardcover. First edition. A small stain on the copyright page (and the facing dedication page), a little smudging to the boards, a near fine copy in a partially price-clipped, very good plus dustwrapper with a small chip at the crown and light edgewear. Nicely Inscribed by the author to his close friend, and occasional co-author, Harry Leon Wilson: "For H.L., who may be reminded of something or somebody, here and there --- N.B.T. Aug. 26, 1933. Kennebunkport." Interestingly, Tarkington signs using his true first initial "N" for his real first name "Newton," which he seldom did -- perhaps he did so as a lighthearted jab at Wilson, who often went by the name "H. Leon Wilson." The novel was bought by MGM as a dramatic vehicle for Lana Turner, but the script turned out to be too lighthearted and Norman Taurog's 1943 film version was instead a musical, showcasing Judy Garland as the small-town girl who impresses Broadway producer Van Heflin. A great association copy: Tarkington and Wilson collaborated on a number of plays early in their careers, several of which were filmed, probably most notably, *The Man From Home* in 1914 (and re-filmed again in 1922), one of the earliest feature films directed by Cecil B. De Mille. Another collaboration was *Cameo Kirby*, filmed first in 1914, but most notably by John Ford in 1923 with John Gilbert, Alan Hale, and Jean Arthur. Wilson, who was married to Rose O'Neill (creator of the Kewpie Doll), wrote several other books that were filmed, including *Merton of the Movies, Ruggles of Red Gap*, and *Bunker Bean*. Over sixty films were made from Tarkington's works, including *The Magnificent Ambersons.* See this book in 3D on our site. Bookseller Inventory # 87556

Item Description: Doubleday, 1921. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First Edition, First Printing. This scarce dustjacket is seldom offered on the market and is quite rare in any condition. The bad news is that this copy has been poorly restored by an unprofessional who didn't know what they were doing. Not only are pieces missing from the majority of the dustjacket, but the remaining original parts of the dustjacket have been glued together on a photo copy of the original dustjacket. The good news is the book is a true first edition. The binding is tight, with light wear to the edges. Most pulitzer collections lack this title so this is a filler copy. Trades and offers welcomed.

M. HuntLAID INÑLemperly's bookplate signed by the author and an A.L.s, 1 1/2 pp. 1100 North Pennsylvania Street, July 5, 1900:"I very gladly sign your label which I enclose, and also allow me to congratulate you on the very artistic design [E. D. French 1900]."About the first edition of 'The Gentleman from Indiana': I do not know where a copy is obtainable yet there should be no difficulty about it, since it was a large edition, 5,000. I fancy Mr. J. L. Thompson (of Doubleday, Page & Co.N.Y. City) would know just where to find one.| Thanking you for your interest, I am | Very truly yours, | Booth Tarkington".This copy has appeared twice at auction, at Parke-Bernet, January 4-5, 1940 "The Library of Paul Lemperly", Lot 941 ($40); and again at PB on January 18. 1961 Lot 579 ($37) when it was purchased by a Richmond maritime collector from whose estate we recently acquired it. Interestingly, somewhere between 1940 and 1961, the book and letter were separated for there is also included a dealer's description of the letter alone, Item 243Ñpossibly from one of Walter M. Hill's catalogues, and a note "April 5Ñ1946 Walter M. Hill 'The Gentleman from Indiana' .Signature laid in [presumably on the bookplateÑno mention of A.L.s]." Possibly Hill split the objects and catalogued them separately in a 1946 catalogue, and a single purchaser reunited them, perhaps Ms. Elizabeth F. M. Hunt?A real insight into the collecting habits of one of the founders of the Rowfant Club. The bookplate reads: "This Volume, | For Insertion in Which the Author | Has Been Pleased to Write His Name | [blank] | Is The Property of | Paul Lemperly.". Bookseller Inventory # 2646
